Reach out in love... partnering with God to create a compassionate and just world.

Giving

Extravagant Generosity
"You will be enriched in every way for your great generosity." 2Corinthians 9:11
 
 
 
God is extremely generous, the source of love, light and every good gift. We are called to serve a giving God with the same mercy, justice and compassion Jesus taught. 

Extravagant Generosity is not only about offering tithes or pledges. It is also about offering our time and talents to nurture our faith and world community, just as God nurtures us.                                                      

The contributions necessary and the opportunities available to keep our church vital are many. Gratitude for giving and receiving is an integral part of a strong faith community.

 

Gift and Talent Inventory

"Instead of speaking the truth in a spirit of love, we must grow up in every way to Christ, who is the head. Under his control all the different parts of the body fit together, and the whole body is held together by every joint with which it is provided. So when each part works as it should, the whole body gorows and builds itself up through love." Ephesians 4:15-16

Each year we invite all who attend our Faith Community to fill out a gift and talent inventory. This inventory is how the Ministry Team and other groups find folks whose passion and or gifts are in a particular area to do the work of our church. We encourage folks to reach beyond their comfort zone to do something they have never done before but have had a desire to try. This is another form of extravagant generosity, the sharing of our time and talents.
